30-minute weekly radio program for January 12, 2010. To my surprise, young people today seem sharper, saner, more poliically active, and more inspiring than several preceding generations of young'uns. Could there be hope for the future? We hear from GEORGE CARLIN, trying & failing to sound like a pedophobe ... from two bright young women in high school (MARI OYE and LEAH ANTHONY LIBRESCO) who challenged Bush on torture ... and from journalist JOHANN HARI, reporting from the COP-15 climate conference, on the wisdom & courage of the young protesters.
